In March and April, IES Abroad staff will present three webinars. We look forward to your joining us!

Join us for the latest webinar in our Diversity Webinar Series: What’s the Big IDEA? Your Roadmap to Diversity in Education Abroad. In this webinar, our Director of Diversity Recruitment and Advising Gretchen Cook-Anderson will discuss why some students don’t self-identify and how to inspire greater response rates for tracking study abroad enrollment diversity on your campus.

IES Abroad MAP for Language and Intercultural Communication
We have reached the final stages of the implementation of the IES Abroad MAP for Language and Intercultural Communication. In this webinar, Program Dean Dr. Lee L’Hote will give a brief overview of “The Language Map” and how it is being implemented in language teaching at IES Centers worldwide. The webinar will also discuss the changes to our course numbering and syllabi and clearly outline the equivalencies from past to the revised syllabi. We encourage study abroad advisors and language faculty to attend.
